For those of you who have never seen it, you are in for a treat. Soap Box Derby racing has been around since the 1930's. Youth ages 8-17 from all over Iowa come to Norwalk to compete in downhill, gravity- powered racers that they build themselves with a parent/adult to compete for a chance to represent Norwalk at the 82nd annual All-American Soap Box Derby. The All-American Soap Box Derby is the premier youth and family oriented racing program in the United States. Established in 1933, it is an American tradition. Racing is not just for boys, many girls compete also. The Norwalk race is one of 450 races held throughout the country each season. The race is held on Main Street going downhill from the Christian Church to Elm and starts at 9:00 a.m. Come cheer the racers on. For some it is the first time that they have competed in a race. This race is race stock, super-stock, and masters divisions. Bleachers will be set up on Main Street for spectators. The Christian Church's youth group will be selling breakfast and lunch at the church. There will also be a raffle to help defray costs of the race. There are many great prizes donated by local business owners and residents. Anyone wishing to donate can contact Pat Wahl at 515-981-4928. Drawing for the raffle items will be held at the race and you need not be present to win. For more information or to race a car, you can contact Lowell Kleen, race director, at 515- 360-7563 or Maria Hackett, president, at dmsoapbox@ gmail.com. National Public Works Week Celebrates Community By Shelley Stravers In accordance with the tradition of the American Public Works Association, those who work in professions that provide and maintain public facilities and services will be honored during National Public Works Week, May 19th through May 25th. This week is meant to celebrate the contributions of public works professionals as well as the communities they serve. We value our communities and the role public works professionals play in keeping them safe and functioning smoothly. Our objective is designed to increase public awareness of their contributions as well as to enlighten the public about the duties, practices, and goals of public works professionals. Public works professionals include those who manage water, sewer, public transportation, and refuse removal systems as well as those responsible for maintaining public buildings and grounds. They are, in short, the people who maintain and improve the systems and services vital to a community's health, safety and comfort. In celebration of National Public Works Week, members of your Norwalk Public Works Department will be at the local Farmers Market on Friday, May 24th. The staff will have several pieces of equipment on display and will be happy to answer questions. Bring your family and stop by to see the equipment up close. This would be a great time to thank your Public Works staff for their hard work and dedication to your community!
